Sarah Moon first captured the world’s attention as a stunning, young fashion model in Paris in the free-wheeling 1960s. She also greatly enjoyed photographing her friends in the fashion world during their free time.
In 1970 she earnestly began to pursue a career as a photographer. She quickly met with professional success, and became well-known and respected for her unique vision and the signature style of her photography.
The images she created were soft, romantic, melancholy, outside of time, more dream-like fantasy than anything real — and composed with an eye for shape, and strong graphic recognition.
Moon created the advertising "look" for the French fashion houses Chanel, Cacharel, and Comme des Garçons; and she was sought after by other designers around the world.
Moon’s career took off with her fashion images, but she always pursued her own personal, non-commercial work. Her fine-art photography and film-making have become her primary focus today.
